Several traditions are returning to the Baltimore Comic-Con this year when the show kicks off in October. This includes the Baltimore Comic-Con Yearbook, returning in 2021 for the ninth year, celebrating creators appearing at this year’s show. For this year’s book of art, we’re doing something different with the Yearbook, putting all those face coverings and fears and frights back exactly where they belong: Halloween. So, welcome to the 2020-2021 Baltimore Comic-Con Yearbook: Trick or Treat Edition.
Beautifully designed by returning guest and Love and Capes, Cupid’s Arrows, Warning Label, and Time and Vine creator Thom Zahler, the softcover, square-bound book comes in a standard and, for VIP ticketholders, a limited VIP cover edition.
The Baltimore Comic-Con scavenger hunt, which has become a must-do activity for many of our fans, will be back in 2021! When you buy the book, you’ll get a list of Yearbook contributors and their table numbers. Participants succeeding in acquiring the appropriate quota of autographs from contributors can then get their choice of bonus prints — and it’s a great way to meet our guests!
“We thought long and hard about how we were going to return with the yearbook thematically,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “We missed last year’s book because of the virtual event, but we’re really excited to see everyone again in person this year. As a way to exorcise the demons we all encountered the past year and a half, we thought, ‘What better way to do so than to put them on the pages of our yearbook?’ And so we did! There’s some fantastic art this year, and it’s all a little spooky and a lot of fun.”
The Baltimore Comic-Con runs this October 22-24 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Tickets to the show are now available.
